of a company. they asked me to recommend some people in finance and technology. i did not go further than our own backyard. christie is now the ceo of she will introduce to you the next generation of finance on the local platform. hey. >> hey. [applause] >> thank you. thank you for coming out. as tom said, i am the ceo of dough. in my background, i came from sink or swim. i have 20 years of experience in and around the trading industry. i would say that these last two years, i have been in financial media. i have learned a lot. what we have done now is that we have pulled together all of our experience from sink or swim and we have rolled it into a company called dough. right now, we believe that the industry is ripe for innovation. we have -- let me just get my slides here -- one of the things that we truly believe is that banks and brokerage firms and wealth managers have an opportunity to tap into the younger generation. we think there needs to be a new approach, but with a new visual and with a new design. and we need to go to that younger generation with how they use technolog
and sequestration technologies. you did not require the same technology for gas-fired power plants. >> yes. >> by requiring ccs for coal units only, are aren't you applying a standard that is higher regarding the carbon emitted from coal-generating power? it sounds like it's not an all of the above energy plan. it singles out coal for punitive treatment. can it really be transparent and equitable application was clean air act? i like the administration that you have testified supports opportunity in natural gas. so do i. i support them also for new coal-fired plants. and coal liquids. all the reasons epa gives for declining to find the ccs technology to -- for gas-fired units. apply with equal use to coal-fired units imrp require of it coal. it strikes me the answer to the question is to set a precedent. epa is under a consent decree -- on greenhouse refrien i are in the new future. will that -- emission reduction also require implementing technology that is unproven on a commercial scale? >> it seems to be the new definition of adequately demonstrated. when epa requires the technology for
? >> absolutely. i'd have to say the technology is so pervasive and so precise, it really must be used to our advantage and clearly the nsa is working within parameters that have been prescribed legally. we have the fisa court that allows to us do that. so the united states is taking advantage of some technologies and capabilities to really do the very, very best it can in terms of tracking those that have -- that the united states has great interest on and known terrorists. and as a result of that, absolutely some innocents will be caught up in this. but because of the nature of the technology and the direction that we want to take this, those innocents, much like brian todd described, will be sifted away and swept away and not used in any type of ongoing tore developing investigation and/or operation. >> so, christopher with the aclu, let me ask you this, do you see any value to this kind of surveillance or do you think it's run amuck? >> this is not a surveillance program targeted at people suspected of doing something wrong. this is getting vast achlts of data from people who have done no
if there is an accident to review what happened. i know there's a technology called positive train and control or ptc designed to automatically stop or slow a train before certain accidents occur to prevent train to train collisions or derailments. do we know if this train had that technology? >> we know that this train did not have that technology. now, let's talk a little bit about the technology. it's a communications and signaling system that the ntsb says is capable of preventing accidents caused by human error. specifically excessive speed. also, failure to obey signals. now the technology, what it does is uses wi-fi and gps signals along with sensors along the railroad track to essentially track the train's location and speed restrictions. if the train is going too fast, well, on board equipment automatically either stops or slows down the train. again, this train did not have that technology. however, congress has set a december, 2015 deadline for all passenger trains and freight trains carrying hazardous materials to have this technology, wolf. >> rene will have a lot more on this story comi
believe this website is and will function effectively. >> president obama's technology troubleshooters say can handle 800,000 each day. >> the success or failure of healthcare reform sexfected to -- is expected to be critical in this year's election. >> there's a spot waiting for me. >> a new food truck lottery took effect. for the rest of december, eight popular locations, 95 spaces are reserved for the lottery winners. >> the stock market kicked off the month of december with a loss. even though a record number of people came out to stop over the long thanksgiving weekend, they spent less for the first time in nearly seven years. >> blackberry's ceo says the one-time leader in the smart phone industry is no longer for sale, but that the struggle company will focus again on delivering. after months of speculation, d.c. mayor, vincent gray will run for reelection. >> everybody will ask about this federal investigation. talking about the 2010 campaign, for which the u.s. attorney said there was a corrupt campaign. the mayor said all along he has done nothing wrong a
as the technology required to make sure these kinds of accidents don't occur, that technology is available to prevent derailments, prevent head of hn crashes if you will. for some reason, the technology is not on a popular route like this. why is that? is it simply a matter of money? >> well, well, it is partly a matter of money. you know, these commuter lines are borderline profitable operations. if that. many of them are subsidized. but it's awfully complex, positive train control. in europe, you have monopolies that are on the rail lines. so you have one operator, one type of equipment. on the hudson valley line, you have amtrak, you have metro north, you have csx. at least three different operators, different types of equipment. and then most of all, wolf, it takes radio band to put positive train control in place. and the fcc has put a road block up on implementing it. since last may, they have not moved forward on approving applications for upwards of 20,000 new towers necessary for positive train control. it's a real problem. >> peter goelz is the former managing director of the nts
think right now we're hearing a lot about personalization technology. almost siri-like apps. they almost anticipate what you want, which is pretty interesting. we spoke last week about a technology where you walk into the store, your phone knows your purchasing history and it will give you a push notification and say, hey, you might want to check this out. that kind of stuff is in the works. tech is moving so far beyond the smartphone. it's not just the hot new apps. we're talking robots and drones. it's an interesting time for technology. >> i think we've done stories on auto plants that have replaced workers with robots. now you see drones, having drones with the ability to deliver packages. behind the steak and shake, when does all of this take place? >> these are all great ideas. look at amazon drones. the faa has to make regulations and that's not happening for at least 2015. think about irobot. these are being developed but google is very serious about this. they brought andy reuben in, the guy who was behind android, they've acquired seven startups that are all robotics focused an
example of an employer using technology to increase productivity. we either workers are working harder for the same output or fewer amount of hours are being worked for the same amount of output. >> richard, could you make a case that people paying a quarter or a buck extra because it helps the niya potts of the world? >> is absolutely does. i think one of the things that the records show and the studies show is that increased minimum wage, in particularly at times like this when there has been so much wage stagnation, and so much pent up demand will lead to increased consumer confidence, increased consumer spending and that in turn translates to additional jobs as more successful economy for everyone. by the way, we can look back in history and see in 1968, for example, the minimum wage in real dollar terms or in fixed dollars terms would be $9.44 now. and the unemployment is less than half of what it is today. the notion that minimum wage destroys jobs is disproved. and when you think about it, the common sense that says people at the lower end of the income spectrum are going to spe
and derailed in bridgeport, connecticut. some experts argue that the technology exists and could help prevent deadly accidents like sunday's derailment. jake ward joins us from san francisco with that. jake, what sort of technology are we talking about? >> john, it's called a positive control system. positive train control is where the ntsb i has been pushing for0 years. the combination of gps sensors, sensors in the tracks, control sensors and remote control in the trains to compensate when a driver has been disabled, incapacitated or not paying attention. >> is there any difference between passenger trains and freight trains and the technology that they have? >> well, the difference really has to do with just how incredibly dangerous a train can be depending on what it's carrying. we've seen in new york the dangerous situation where trains are full the people. but even trains without people on board canner dangerous. in 2005 in south carolina, there was a terrible crash in which a tanker full of chlorine basically atomized in the air and a cloud of this poisonous gas caused the evacuation o
>> thousands of people already do that thanks to the cell phone technology that let's ordinary car owners offer rides to people. people who want a ride open an application this one is called lift. others include side car. they press a button and that flags a nearby driver. in this case me. >> we got one. >> lift makes drivers with a mustache on the car. it is a marketing gimmick. but it helps a person who wants a pickup to spot the car. i also had the passenger's phone number. >> your destination is on the left. >> and his name? kim? >> unlike normal cabs they let drivers get in the front seat. >> welcome. is this your 1 lift drive? >> my first lift. >> where are you headed? >> jim signed up for lift because it is cheaper than taxis maybe 20 percent cheaper. >> i have friends that used it. he likes it they let you sit in front. lift's founder says it makes for a friendlier ride. >> you see the pink mustache lots of times the passenger smiles the driver smiles. get in the front seat it's a fist bump and a new experience connecting with someone in your community. someone with different music and
are spending more money, we have more technology being put into education than ever before so we are doing something wrong and we need to figure out what it is. so what do we do with this information? >> there is a lot to learn from this. you know a very important point. if we are spending more. we are spending more than most of the countries in the world and we don't have enough to show for it. also the point is that radical change is possible. upstarred countries like finland and poland, they turn them around. they are using high standard and high regard for teachers. perhaps most hearting for the u.s. we are told many of these countries turning themselves around are using innovation that started in the u.s. but it's not just ideas, it's many implementation. martha: there are so many factors at play here. we'll talk about it in a good debate coming up. so we ask everybody to stick around. good to see you. bill: fox news alert. minutes from now house speaker john boehner on the obamacare reboot. you will see this in a matter of minutes as soon as it starts. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] it s

that looking to use this cost-effective drone technology in the coming years. good for amazon. i congratulate them. the f.a.a. is charged with the responsibility of coming up with ways to regulate drones for safety reasons. but who's watching out for the privacy of american citizens? congress has the responsibility and the duty to set clear regulations for all drones in domestic use. absent legislation to prevent surveillance of americans, companies could use drones not only for delivery but other ways that in my opinion violate the constitutional right of privacy. the issue of concern, mr. speaker, is surveillance, not the delivery of packages. that includes surveillance of someone's back yard, snooping around with a drone, checking out a person's patio to see if that individual could buy or needs a new patio furniture from the company, photographing swing sets, pools or the people that are in the pools or even looking into windows, all of that could be done with the use of drones by corporate america or by individuals. this could all be possible. so congress must ensure that the expanded us

for the 3d technology in the senate. what is going to happen this week? >> i think what is going to happen is the senators that want to go further, who say this is not enough and the issue of 3d printed guns needs to be dealt with, they'll make that position on but they'll pass the house bill at the end of the day. everyone admits that's better than nothing and the reality, the sad depressing reality is if y you have to get the nra support to pass any gun bill. i think that's what's going to happen at the end of the day. >> part of the sort of political strategy of this is i think is one of the reason -- chuck schumer has been talking about making this a one-year extension. the idea being maybe if you extend it for a year, it comes up after the 2014 elections and then maybe you can pick up -- we're hearing about the republicans who are scared of tea party primary challenges. maybe then you can -- after the election, you can pick them off in the lame duck session. it is a strategy to maybe get more comprehensive gun legislation then. is that -- you start looking at the futility of the last

to discuss amazon's vision for drone technology is tech crunch writer, alex wilhelm. great to speak to you. what do you think about this? what's the potential here? the applications? is this fundamentally down the road a few years a game changer? >> yeah. well, they are very confident this will happen. you have to realize the scale of amazon. they don't do things in small ways. if they are going to deploy this, they are going to do it on a wide scale. presuming the technology advances as it has internally at am zon and the f.a.a. gets it in place, i don't see how this doesn't come very large in about five years. >> how about some of the issues here, the drawbacks, the idea of hacking into those things? those things falling out of the sky, liability. >> fear mongering. >> what do you thing? >> amazon is a smart company. they built awv, the backbone of much of the internet. i am pretty sure they can build a drone that can't be hacked. these are small issues compared to what technology could do for consumers. >> usual not worried about this thing being hacked by one of us? you are worried abo

, this social compact began to unravel. technology made it easier for companies to do more with less. eliminating certain job occupations. a more competitive world let companies ship jobs anywhere. and as good manufacturing jobs automated or headed offshore, workers lost their leverage, jobs paid less and offered fewer benefits. as values of community broke down and competitive pressure increased, businesses lobbied washington to weaken unions and the value of the minimum wage. as a trickledown ideology became more prominent, taxes were slashed for the wealthiest, while investments in things that make us all richer, like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither. and for a certain period of time we could ignore this weakening economic foundation, in part because more families were relying on two earners, as women entered the workforce. we took on more debt, financed by a juiced-up housing market. but when the music stopped and the crisis hit, millions of families were stripped of whatever cushion they had left. and the result is an economy that's become profoundly unequal. a

is technology may help us. there are now systems that rely on gps and satellite information more so than intensive equipment on the tracks. that would help in those situations where the passengers trains travel over tracks that are privately owned by other companies. it will take congress ordered it and in many cases, there are financial incentives, tax incentives, et cetera, cost sharing with the government that might have to happen. but it will take congress ordering the trains to complete this, because the honor, the trust and obey system has resulted in amtrak and a few others. it needs to go on passenger trains first. the bullet train in japan has this and that's why they can achieve speeds of 200 miles an hour. >> mary schiavo, thank you very much. the information. >> thank you. >> if you are in a train accident what steps can you take to be as safe as possible? something as simple as choosing the best seat could make all the difference. cnn's chris lawrence is in washington with more on that. what have you learned, chris? >> we'll tell you what a national safety expert tells his o

for republicans. caller: i just wanted to ask why can't we, with our technological abilities now, draw down a lot of manpower and keep -- because we have many nations in the world with armies that can provide military support for the united states, for advancing democracy and freedom. i don't see why we all have to go broke to support all these other countries and their defense when there are many other nations with militaries just like ours. guest: i think daniel makes a couple of interesting points there. one of the issues diplomatically we are having is a lot of our allies are trying to cut their own defense budgets for obvious reasons, and that is a concern of the pentagon. the other point is the fact that we have so much more technology these days. i talked to several people that suggested to me that, yes, the cost per person has gone up a lot, but that makes sense considering these are not the sort of ground-pounding trigger pullers we may have had in the army 30, 40 years ago. the people in the service these days are much more highly educated and well trained. they are dealing with complex
an undetectable firearm. but here's the second problem. the second problem is that this new technology that is pretty widely available already, called 3-d printing, has made it really easy to make firearms that comply with the existing law but are still potentially undetectable. why is that? because to be a legal weapon, you have to have a certain percentage of the weapon be metal so that it can be picked up by a metal detector or a x-ray machine. but because we can now make very creatively constructed weapons with 3-d printers, that piece of metal can be easily removed before it goes through a metal detector and still be used without the metal on the other side of the detection unit. thus, essentially erasing the benefit of having a metal component if the metal component can just be stripped out. it's a pretty simple update that we have to make here. all we have to say is that the metal piece of the gun has to be integral to the firing mechanism of the gun so that if you take the metal out to get it through a metal detector, it doesn't work on the other end. but, mr. president, we're
with the collusion. that technology was invented right before world war ii, and the military liked it so much they conscripted this football helmet essentially for military use. and, in fact, i was a marine for many years and i wore that web suspension helmet into the 21st century. football got rid of that technology in the 1970s. and as twisted as it sounds, we equip our football players better in a country than we do our soldiers and marines. coaching got better. heads up tackling. coaches not, you know, no longer sing put you between the numbers and that kind of thing. all of these things combined to bring football from the point where they had 36 deaths from galatians in 1968, to last season where there were two deaths from galatians. again got dramatically safer. and at the time we should've been giving football a pat on the back, where getting a kick below the belt. to put this in perspective, there were no kids that died last year from a football hit. more kids died getting struck by lightning than playing football last season and getting struck by other players. and the perception fro
